re: Dead Island Riptide Discussion

Thats not a very promising first look. But its not like the 1st won was GOTY. NO other game is on the immediate horizon for me anyhow. What's $60 to a gaming fiend?

EA must be behind this.

this will probably be known as Dead Island 1.5, but the gameplay was so fun on the last one i'm going to give it a shot anyhow.

don't even care. gameplay looked exactly the same in the video i saw. which is fine, since the first one was fun. was there ever any dlc for the first one?

I was a bit worried when I first saw the score but after reading the review I'm still excited to pick it up.

It seems like it is going to be just like the first game, which I loved. All of the complaints look like they stem from there not being any major upgrades to the game.

Yeh, i think so. several if i remember correctly.


they just made the mistake of waiting 3 months to release any of the DLC. Most, like I, had already moved on at that point.


Pevy and I played thru the 1st DLC or so. I remember it being sort of a Wave based thing where you tried to hold off zombies as long as possible.

weapons KK wants to see: cowprod, crossbow, lawnmower blade, some type of spear, moar brass knuckle combos.


i also feel the need to toss hatchets across the map with great accuracy and kill zombies.


i hope this isn't too much to ask.

meh. sounds exactly like COD zombies. I'd have rather seen a new level/map somewhere in the middle

stun gun IN THE FACE!!!!

also, throwing stars would be fun. in terms of your spear, i'm thinking some type of harpoon. stick a zombie in the chest, drag him over, decapitate. or just sink it thru his head

dunno if I will be picking this up.

I enjoyed the original, but I may wait for the price to go down a bit. I'm sure by the time I show interest, everyone will have moved on.

re: Dead Island Riptide Discussion
I'm actually probably going to wait as well. No sense in paying $60 and then my gaming time doesn't line up with anyone else and I'm running solo. May redbox it if it's there. I can't imagine a brand new game being scratched.

So, if/when you decide to get it let me know. It will probably be new to me

Saw it online at Best Buy for 49.99, so it's a little cheaper. I'm going to pick it up in a couple of weeks. I've got some work and school stuff I need to finish before I can put any significant time into gaming.

Why's that? The ones I always see are usually good up until the day before.
